RALEIGH — North Carolina’s only statewide newspaper, North State Journal, is announcing the addition of Wednesday issues beginning Feb. 8.The print newspaper has been delivering on Sundays since its first issue was delivered to charter subscribers on Feb. 28, 2016.”The North State Journal begins and ends with our tag line, ‘Elevate the Conversation.’ Our entire staff works to put together an article that creates a positive discourse in our state by adding value to the conversations of North Carolinians,” said publisher Neal Robbins.”One of our big successes this first year has been expanding our reader base to all 100 counties; continuing to hire exceptional people on all sides of business from our content creators to designers to circulation; and adding a business section due to the increased reader interest in business topics,” he added.The newspaper, which continues to feature news, features, opinion and sports geared to North Carolinians, premiered a business section in January.The business section includes stock updates and economic development news; the business information local papers have moved away from carrying.”This is another reason to buy the North State Journal,” said Robbins. “We are your go-to paper for consistent information on economic growth statistics, unemployment numbers and the business information people need.”The 24-page Wednesday edition and the 36-page Sunday edition continue with the high-quality content, photography, design and print customers are used to receiving from the North State Journal.”We take great care to provide our readers with the best newspaper we can, each and every issue,” said managing editor Donna King. “Our strategy from the beginning has been that we would not compromise quality just to get to the next stage in our business plan,” King added. “So it is exciting to be able to announce our expansion before we hit our first anniversary at the end of this month.”Existing subscribers will receive the additional midweek issue at no additional cost, and subscription rates for new customers will not change.”We are accomplishing our mission through the balance and uniqueness of our stories; thorough our presence at events others do not attend; the timing of our stories; and even the layout of our paper,” said Robbins. “Our ‘Murphy to Manteo’ section fills a void in the media landscape. You can live in Martin County and experience what is happening in McDowell County. We’re living our tagline of elevate the conversation.”Interested subscribers should visit www.nsjonline.com
